Burley's Care was recommended by our doctor - thank heavens he did! - don't know what we would do without their care and help. All the staff and carers we have met and come here to help my husband have been excellent, even he has commented how he likes all the carers who tend him and he, unfortunately, has Alzheimer's. So a big thank you to Burley's Care.
We are extremely happy with all the care that all the staff give. All of my father-in-law's needs are met with kindness and dedication. All staff are very competent when facing problems that need immediate attention.
I have nothing but enormous praise for your company and how well trained are all the carers (who have cared for me over a number of years). All the carers, now and in the past are excellent and caring. This gives me an opportunity to say a special thank you to them all.
I have always found Burley's to be extremely competent, caring and professional in caring for my cousin who has dementia. Nothing is too much trouble and they have dealt with several difficult situations brilliantly.
